Change Jewel lettering color

Since you also have to remove the chrome XBOX lettering you can use:
Brake Cleaner, oven cleaner, paintthinner, alcohol or any other chemical that wont melt or cloud up the jewel (but NEVER use acetone)

Mask of as much of the jewel as possible but allowing you to get paint into the now empty XBOX letters and "fill" them with the color of your choice (second coat might be needed to fill them)


Once the paint has dryed


Remove the masking tape


Sand the excess paint of (link to XBOX jewel sanding and polishing.htm)


Now you´re jewel should look like this (if you chose green) and you can stop now and light up the jewel with a CC


Or you can mask of the front of the jewel and give the jewel a nice background color


When its dry you´re done

I'm trying to do this particular thing to my jewel, but I haven't had much success. I've used lots of isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, applied with a cotton swab, and now I'm trying paint thinner.

Do I need to agitate the chrome Xbox lettering or something?

Yes I used a toothpick and even then it took a long time (be careful with the paint thinner i can make the jewel crack)

Some have put hotmelt in the lettering and pulled it ou along with the chrome when is was dry

Do you mean hot glue when you say hotmelt? I'm not sure if it's the same thing, but it kinda sounds like it would be. If you're not familiar with that specific term, it's clear stuff that you stick in a gun and it comes out all hot and viscous.

I think I may go back to isopropyl alcohol and use a toothpick. The paint thinner doesn't seem to have done anything.

Well, I got all of the chrome off, but the spray paint just doesn't seem thick enough. This combined with the scuffs and chips I've made in it have driven me to insanity. So I just bought a jewel off of llamma.com instead (got the atomic one).

painting an xobx

I really love what you did to your xbox, painting it green and black. It's a really good job. I want to do the same but with silver paint instead of that black and the same color green. I have two xboxs. One blew up. So im gunna take the shell off of that 1 for the painting process and just switch the shell on the one that blew up to the one im using now. It made a loud boom and smoke came out of it. Just 2 tell u it didnt explode.
